'ello! I'm a 2D animator + illustrator from the UK who has done gigs for the BBC, SEGA, Essex County Council and the Adventure Island theme park, to name a few!

Randomly found these previously un-scanned doodles of early concept sketches for Gaga Kun from 2020. At one point he might of had shorts and a hoodie!

Seeing if Dall-E mini can come close to what my OCs look like by describing them and the results are....well, these. A couple get kinda close!

The multi-hit combo of:

- my day job ramping up in busy-ness
- my freelance animation projects dragging along way longer than planned
- my backlog of commissions
- chasing up house rental repairs
- parents breathing down my neck over getting onto the property ladder one day

..is really taking a toll on my physical and mental health lately. I'm just so tired and there's no end in sight to any of it. Just gotta plow through it..

Decided to take one of the random doodles I did when playing Art Sqool last year and make a full illustration of it. Why? WHO KNOWS!!!!

My Mega Drive shrine/corner of the house looking pretty sweet now I've got some frames up!

This isn't just a day-job thing really, I often feel out of place online too. I really don't have enough of an opinion on things to come across as interesting? and I just kinda keep my thoughts to myself more often than not as when I do voice them they are usually dumb af.

Just gonna have to face the fact that no matter what job I take, how many people work there or where it is I'm never gonna be able to make friends out of it. People just choose to merely tolerate my existence and only talk to me if they have to.

Not sure if it's an age gap thing all everyone's Neurodivergent radars go off the moment I walk into the room or if I'm just too shy and/or boring. Who knows..

“You are legally required to draw Amy with boxing gloves“ some guy on bird site says. You don’t have to ask me twice!

Anyone else having issues with Mastodon where some images simply never load, forever stuck on the blurry version no matter how long you leave it on it? To note these are not sensitive tap to reveal images, seems to be random.

It's fellow @Alreadyish !! Felt a sudden urge to draw her while watching one of her youtube streams!

The last few bits of art I've made were done with no sketch whatsoever, just made up as I went along. Mainly because I am squeezing them in between projects so they have to be quick but it's a nice feeling to just dig straight in and still end up with a final illustration despite zero prep work.

Inspired by a 'draw your in the palette' fad going around. This was way too much fun to do.

The icon I made for my old character The Howdooyoodoo somehow became a full illustration for the fun of it.
